Also we are pleased to introduce Kassie Runsabove as a featured speaker at Rise Together Montana Women's March: Billings 2018.

Passionate   about   increasing   education,   awareness,   networking   and   collaboration,   Kassie works   to   expand   access   to   all   available   resources   for   underserved   populations,   such   as the American Indian population. Allison   Johnson    is   a   junior   at   Billings   West   High   School.   This   year,   she   started   a politically   minded   club   at   her   school   to   motivate   other   high   school   students’   interest   in engaging in politics and to ensure young people are represented, too. You can hear from Allison tomorrow at the rally following our march Introducing   yet   another   #PowerHouse   to   the   speaker   lineup   for   Rise   Together   Montana Women’s March Billings 2018: Representative   Jessica   Karjala   has   served   two   terms   in   the   Montana   House   of   Representatives,   earning   her   first   term   by   unseating an incumbent. Among   her   many   accomplishments   as   a   legislator,   Representative   Karjala   successfully   sponsored   legislation   in   2015   to   allow   people with disabilities who earn an income to save more money and keep more resources. Born   and   raised   in   Montana,   Kathleen   O’Donnell   served   our   country   in   the   Army   National   Guard.   Don’t   Ask   Don’t   Tell   was   being debated    at    the    time,    and    she    feels    lucky    to    have    met    her    wife    Casey    during    the    same    period.    Kathleen    is    an    advocate    for nondiscrimination protections and volunteers for organizations that promote equality. We are lucky to have Kathleen as a speaker at our rally in Billings! Tips for the Billings Women’s March 1. Be prepared for cold weather. 2.   Wear   appropriate   clothing   and   the   most   comfortable   shoes   you   own   for   both   standing   and   walking.   For   cold   weather   wear   layers.   If rain   is   predicted,   be   sure   to   wear   a   waterproof   poncho   or   rain   coat.   In   case   of   rain,   cover   your   signs   in   clear   plastic   (a   dry-cleaning   bag with clear packing tape will work) so colors don’t run onto your clothes. 3. Carpool with others to make parking more manageable. Parking is free at the city parking garage at 2912 3rd Ave N. 4. Eat before attending. Consider tucking a snack into your pocket in case you get hungry. 5.   Use   the   restroom   before   the   march.   There   will   be   five   (5)   porta   potties   at   North   Park.   There   are   no   restrooms   along   the   one-mile route. 6. Keep to the left of the road so safety vehicles can pass if necessary. 7. Be kind and respectful of each other and the neighborhoods through which we shall walk. 8.   Don’t   engage   any   counter-protesters   (if   there   are   any):   If   someone   starts   yelling   at   you,   don’t   engage.   Walk   away.   Make   sure   you are with a group and are keeping each other safe . 9. If the situation seems dangerous call 911. 10.   Consider   returning   to   downtown   after   the   march   for   lunch,   shopping,   coffee,   or   a   haircut   as   a   way   of   supporting   the   businesses along our route. 11. Once the road barriers have been removed, stay on sidewalks when returning to your cars. 12. Dispose of your signs appropriately. If trashcans are full, please take your signs home and dispose of them there. 13.   Let’s   leave   the   route   clean.   Please   don’t   leave   any   trash   behind   either   on   the   streets   or   in   the   park.   Let's   be   the   march   known   for leaving our path even cleaner than when we found it. 14. Enjoy our right to march together in support of women!
